St Mary Bourne Parish Council
Local policy documents
St Mary Bourne has developed its own Neighbourhood Plan which was supported by a referendum held on 20 February 2018 and made at Full Council at BDBC on 22 March 2018.
The Neighbourhood Plan forms part of the development plan for the parish and will be used to guide planning decisions.
Most of the villages of St Mary Bourne and Stoke lie within a Conservation Area which is also relevant for planning decisions.
The parish developed a Village Design Statement in 2005 to describe the distinctive character of the parish. BDBC use this to inform planning decisions in relation to Local Plan Policy EM10 (Delivering High Quality Development).
